Somewhat of a consolidation of the conclusions of other thread passim, basically so we can really concentrate on all those people and things that really get on our ****s when we're out and about trying to enjoy the laissez-faire environment that Switzerland offers and that we all value so much.

French-speaking people, and French people in general.

I protest. Can we have a poll? I really like CAKE. It's a great band.
Well, I do have a cassette tape of Cake that I've never listened to (wonder if it still works?)

I don't mind smokers. My problem is that cigarettes aren't instantly fatal.
